DBSM released a statement today and are hopeful that at the very minimum ‘Lightening’ will get the chance to strike again and will secure a rematch with long reigning champ Zulina Munoz.

The issues raised re any alleged malpractice in Mexico haven’t been highlighted, but there were questions about the scoring post fight.

The Statement reads as follows:

On behalf of Christina Mc Mahon, DBSM are releasing the following statement to clarify matters in relation to last Saturdays WBC World Title fight in Mexico involving Christina and Zulina Nunoz.

On Monday last, a report was prepared on behalf of Christina Mc Mahon and was subsequently forwarded to the WBC for their perusal. Over the last few days we have received confirmation from the WBC that last Sunday’s title fight and the overall event is now being investigated on a number of issues.

Out of respect for all involved we do not want to discuss these issues publicly other than to say that we are confident that after the due process has taken place on the relevant matters that have been raised in this report Christina will get what she deserves – a rematch at the very minimum. We have asked that this rematch take place within 12 weeks.

We will keep you updated over the coming days on how these events transpire.
To conclude, Christina would like to thank sincerely all those who have sent her messages of support and good will over the past week.
